It's a pretty nice bracelet.
-The basketball trials.
-I was thinking - as team captains, we should talk tactics.
Are my conversational skills that lacking?
Well, it's not you.
You're not a basket ball, I guess.
Of course! David is a jock. Therefore, he is required to honour sport above all other things.
You make it sound so dorky.
-I love it.
-You're so funny...
-Hello again, ladies. And David. I believe you are discussing the game of basketball.
-This is team talk.
Oh, well then, how do I become a player? THEY LAUGH
-Oh, she's actually serious!
-The thing is that the girls' team
is kinda full right now, so...
-Hold up, no, no, you said you were holding trials!
Oh, yeah, yeah...
Maybe I did. But as it happens, we're looking for people who can actually play.
-So give Rebecca a chance! For all you know, she could be the greatest player since...
-Yeah, what he said!
Since she's so desperate to humiliate herself, might as well try out.
-Oh, Hazel! I need your help with something!
-Yes, Rebecca? What is it that you want?
Well, I need your help with basketball...
-But you just asked if I...
Oh, that's Rebecca. And this is Sophie.
We raised them from frogspawn!
You named them after us?
Well, Rebecca is the prettiest.
So I see.
In any case, I did not venture here to bicker about amphibians.
-Hazel, I need your help with basketball.
but we have but one day to hand in our Biology Assignment.
These guys are due in to Miss Pemberton tomorrow,
complete with growth charts and feeding plans.
By the way, what's for breakfast?
Oh, well...crunchy bug surprise!
Do you wish to stay and help?
CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS ON HEADPHONES
-Sophia Constance Etheldred Ainsworth! What is this?
-It is merely a sampler.
I can see that!
But why are you not busting sick moves on your Singing Wonder dance mat?
Because I greatly prefer embroidery!
It matters not what you prefer!
All that matters is keeping up appearances.
I had entirely forgotten.
Mother's secret drawer.
The one she gave to me.
This used to belong to Grandmama.
And then it was mine.
it is yours.
But Rebecca is the eldest. Should it not be hers by right?
My dear, honourable Sophie.
Rebecca has scores of trinkets.
Besides, she does not care for old things.
But you will treasure this,
She must have put it here, after...
What is past is past. We must concentrate on the future.
-You will help me to learn basketball?
Rebecca, my legs!
I cannot be seen like this!
Oh, Sophie, chill out!
This is standard basketball get up!
And I think it is rather becoming.
But breeches, Rebecca! Like a boy!
And ending so very high above the ankle!
I cannot believe that this sport is befitting for young ladies!
Well, you played croquet, did you not?
Father said I was the finest player on the entire estate.
Right, well think of it as air-croquet.
Just with a different ball and a hoop. Quickly please!
Do not be nervous! Just follow me.
-For a nun! Hey, catch!
-Shoot! Shoot it!
-Shoot the ball!
Throw it, Sophie! All will be well, I promise.
Go on, take a shot!
Nice work, Sophie! Your sister's good!
-So it would seem.
-Are you trying out for the girls' team, too?
I could teach you a few moves?
I do not know. I have so little experience.
We would be delighted to accept your kind offer.
-Would we not, Sophie?
-Cool. I'll see you at lunch.
This is the nearest you'll ever get to dating David.
So...I'd make the most of it.
Oh, thank you, Christine.
I intend to.
David... What do you think?
I think you'd better wash your face before we get going.
-Trust me. You wear mascara on court, you're blinded as soon as you start to sweat.
But I do not...perspire!
I can't coach you looking like this.
-I won't be responsible for the consequences.
C'mon, Sophie. Let's get started!
Ah! So you're the reason why the room smells like the bottom of a pond!?
My frogs do not smell!
They are clean and intelligent. They are the most fascinating creatures.
Yeah, I know! So, have you done the dissection class yet?
-'What? Did he just say dissection?'
Yeah, you know, when you look inside the frogs!
Keep going, you're doing well.
Good shot! You're not even breaking a sweat! What's your secret?
Nothing! I don't have a secret!
You Brits really are cold-blooded.
Anyone else would be sweating like a camel's armpit in there!
Actually, it is a trifle warm.
Rebecca! What happened to you? I thought David was to coach both of us?
So did I. But now I think he should not coach either of us.
Rebecca, this is the most unwelcome news.
For I truly believe that I was, "getting into it".
I noticed! Indeed, I never witnessed such an unladylike display!
-How dare you criticise my morals?
-When you are all over David like a case of scarlet fever!
-You are just jealous.
-Jealous! What do you possess that I have to be jealous of?
You cannot handle the fact that I am a proactive modern woman!
Oh, my goodness.
Your simpering, swooning ways are outmoded!
-Decency will never be outmoded!
-Where is the decency in stealing your sister's beau?
-David is not your beau!
-So then you are interested in him!
-Sophie! What is happening? I could hear you from the Common Room!
-Oh, Hazel, do not exaggerate!
But I could. You were squabbling over a boy!
It is unseemly and old-fashioned! And what has Sophie's locket to do with this?
-Mother gave the locket to me.
-I said nothing of your locket!
-SHE HEARS A FLURRY OF VOICES
-Be quiet! Be quiet, both of you!
THE VOICES CONTINUE
Stop it! Stop it!
-What have you been saying to her?
-Nothing! It was as if she read my mind.
'Oh, no, she could hear what I'm saying!'
Do you think she can?
Well, if that is the case, it is a shame she has departed,
for I would love you to hear what I am thinking right now. Where are you going?
I am returning to my basketball coaching.
No, you are not! I forbid it!
First you force me to play, then you forbid me!
Well, I am not your lady's-maid!
-'I've definitely got these cats beat.
-All red, is that good?
-Playing cards and philosophy.
-'How can this be?
-I don't really know what I'm doing but I must protect the lollies.'
And I think I'm hearing people's thoughts!
Well, it sounds like you have a case of psychic empathy.
Ah, empathy is a great gift.
Aye. Learn plans of enemy. Then crush him like a beetle!
But I don't wish to crush anyone!
Then use your power for good. As it teaches you the feelings of others, it will show you what is right.
Look, all I want to do is stop my sisters from arguing.
-How do I do that?
-You wish me to crush them for you!
Cool it, Grendel. The chick needs a more mellow solution, you dig?
Right. Could I crush maybe just one of them?
I don't think so. But thank you, anyway.
The truth is...
you can't live their lives for them.
No, your sisters must find their own paths, as must you.
Their happiness will bring an end to your agony. You know?
C'mon, you can make this shot, I know you can.
Just breathe, focus, enter the zone.
It's, like, just a ball and a hoop, right? Like, what's the biggie? Er...like?
OK, let's go again!
Whoa! OK, maybe we're moving a bit fast. Let's ease up.
Whenever you're ready.
Oh, David, your nose! Allow me...
It's OK, see you at the trials...
BOTH: Now look what you've done!
There we go, a lovely cup of tea.
Mrs Heathfield, don't you think the grounds are looking particularly magnificent?
Stunning, yes, absolutely stunning.
'I want to be anywhere else but here.'
'These school governors' meetings are so tiresome.'
Who would like a sandwich, I have wonderfully fresh sandwiches...
'If this woman doesn't stop talking soon she'll spontaneously combust!'
-Hazel, can we help you?
< Help us, someone! Someone get us out of here.
No, Miss Dunnigan.
Hazel, please come and help us! Hazel, you've got to help us!
Hazel, where have you been?
I've finished colouring in all the pie charts!
-Help us please!
-What are we supposed to do?
-What do you want me to do?
-Here, take these to the lab.
I'm late for Advanced Maths.
Mattie, what happens to the frogs after we hand them in?
We get an A! That's all that matters. See ya.
Get us out of this thing, please help us.
Hazel, you've got to help us!
-Please help us!
-Please help us!
Hazel, hurry up... VOICES CLAMOUR
Let us out of this thing.
Please, you have to let us out.
-Please, let us out!
-Let us out of this thing.
-First thing I'm going to do is jump to that pond!
-So am I.
There we go.
Hazel, you angel, thank you!
Here you go, Sophie.
-That's our grades hopping away, I hope you realise that?
Jonathan said that in Biology class, we have to look inside frogs!
-Yeah! They play us a DVD!
-Hazel, you angel, thank you!
You didn't think we were actually going to do anything to them!
-Arghh you did!
-Ah. Well, where do you think they could be going?
Please stop screaming!
It is not my fault David wanted to teach me!
Because of me! It is always because of me! Who learns all the new slang,
who studies the new fashions? Me.
Who had the courage to appeal to the Ghost Council in the first place?
Me. Seriously, who would ever choose you over me?
Mother did. She gave the locket to me, not to you.
How could you!
I really can't apologise enough for this. Back!
Stop! Come on, it's OK.
There you go. There you are.
Hazel Ainsworth. Do these things belong to you?
-Oh, and me!
-Yes, but it was I who released them!
In that case, we'll be seeing what Mr Griffith has to say about this.
-Oh, Jonathan, I did the most hideous thing!
I threw Sophie's locket out of the window. Now she will hate me forever.
It's all right.
-But Sophie's locket...
-Rebecca, I really wouldn't worry about Sophie right now.
-I'd worry about Hazel.
Mr Griffith! Do not punish Hazel! It was all my fault.
Really? Sophie here's been saying exactly the same thing.
How like Sophie, to take the blame for me.
-It wasn't them, it was me!
I was trying to save Sophie and Rebecca.
-So am I!
Mind you, I'm also impressed!
The way you girls stick together. I've never seen such loyal sisters.
You know, the school governors were actually able to see
the funny side of it all. You did certainly liven up their lunch.
And as I'm a bit of a nature lover myself, what say we forget about the whole thing?
Well, what thing?
-How did you?
-You go first.
When I left our dorm I ran into Mattie.
She told me Hazel was in trouble so I went straight to Griffith.
Right after you picked up the locket?
No, there was not time.
But I went and looked and the locket was gone.
-Where did you get that?
-Does it matter? Finders keepers!
-Is that Sophie's locket?
-It contains a lock of my mother's hair!
-Don't think so!
See? It's not yours.
See you at the trials, Soph.
Lock of hair! Gross.
Glad I binned it!
-Here, catch this!
-'I'll show her.'
-Pass, pass, pass!
'Come on Sophie, fight the pass.'
'So unfair, I never even got a chance.'
'There's no way she'll get this in.'
'Right, time's up, Sophie. Let's see what you've really got.'
-OK. Everyone gather round for team selection.
Danni, Chantal and Alice, you're all in.
So that means there's only one spot left.
Which means it's Piper
OK, Piper, go for it!
Never mind, it's just nerves, try again.
I believe it is Sophie's turn.
All right. Sophie.
Do not be nervous, Sophie!
'Right Sophie, you can do this!'
'Miss it, miss it.'
'Just throw it in the hoop!'
Here, I suppose you better have this.
No, thank you.
-Give it to Piper.
-It is more her sort of thing.
-Because friendship is more important than basketball.
And I am already part of the best team in school.
Hey, Sophie. I think this is yours.
Did Christine give it to you?
I swapped it.
You gave Christine your identity bracelet?
Oh, David, thank you!
It was nothing. See ya.
It looks beautiful.
So what did you have to give David in return?
Free maths tuition for a month.
And why would you do that?
No reason. No reason at all.
-What? See what?
Nothing. Nothing at all.
You do realise you are going to fail biology now.
I know, but Mattie understands.
She says some things are just more important than science projects.
Thank you for saving me today,
although there was really no need.
I beg your pardon?!
If it were not for us you would have been stuck in detention for the rest of your life.
At least the voices in my head have stopped.

Dead Gorgeous follows the comical adventures of three beautiful, strong-willed teenaged sisters - who just happen to be ghosts!
The Ainsworth sisters, Rebecca, Sophie and Hazel, died in the mid 1800s and are given a second chance to experience life as teenagers 150 years later. As such, they are three very refined, but spirited, Victorian girls, trying to fit into a society totally alien to the one they have known. However hard they may try to fit in and not call attention to themselves, they will always stand out a bit from the crowd.
Rebecca and Sophie have an almighty argument when one mistakes an innocent moment for sisterly betrayal. Meanwhile Hazel is struggling with a new found ghostly power that allows her to hear what people are thinking. Along with the deafening fall out from Rebecca and Sophie's argument she causes chaos of her own during a school Science experiment.
